When my best friend and designer Lily Kate Vallance announced she would be creating a gorgeous new jungle-themed print for Merchant Footwear I knew whatever it looked like, it would be on my feet.
I first saw the new Jungle print I was drawn to the Marcela Satin Pump. Classic design, with the added touch of an ankle ribbon in the same print. I literally remember screaming ‘Get on my feet NOW!’. I picked myself up a pair over my birthday weekend, because #TreatYoSelf and wore them to work this week.
You guys… I can’t even remember how many compliments I got on these shoes from both guys and gals over a day. Every time I looked down, those perfectly placed, happy pink parrots kept staring up at me and made me smile.
I have to say, these shoes are really comfortable for a pair of heels. The actual heel is thick and sturdy while the ribbon feels like a nice soft hug around my ankle – depending on how you wear them of course. I went for a size 7, because they felt perfectly snug. I tried on the size 8 and walked around the store in both sizes but realised the 7 fit better than the 8.
I’ve styled the Marcela’s in three different ways to show how easy it is to wear a pair ‘busy’ patterned shoes. One thing I love about these shoes is that they are literally 3-4 pairs of shoes in one depending on how you’re wanting to style them that day.
One pair of shoes styled three completely different ways. I LOVE these shoes so much and I can’t wait to figure out some fun new ways to wear them.
But Wait… There’s More?
This print comes in more than one style – including some adorable slip-on flats which I know Lily will be wearing. Check out the full line at Merchant 1948 and grab yourself some jungle goodness before it’s all sold out!
There’s something about a great pair of shoes that can really make your day!
